Our NHS Heroes

Dear Friends and Customers, Many of you are our customers for aesthetic products. And many, many of you have also downed tools in your aesthetic clinics to pick up the honourable hours within the NHS to fight the invisible enemy that is COVID-19. It’s a privilege to know you and we watch with admiration as you do amazing things in tragic and difficult circumstances. We want to do more to help. The last week has seen our company pivot in to a distributor of infection management, PPE and general pharmaceutical medicines privately and through our NHS contract. Little-known fact is that we have a division within our business that solely delivers medication to care homes, residential homes and learning disability centres, people who are the most vulnerable to this pathogen. Our amazingly resourceful team have been able to source highly in demand, scarce products at the request of you, our customers, for the benefit of your work and patients. The team on site is extremely limited compared to what it usually is, and I want to thank them for their service to ensure that customers are receiving their essentials. I’m immensely proud of them and they have shown true resilience and dedication. The team are also taking responsibility of donating and giving away as much as we possibly can and also looking to help our local communities in this challenging economic environment. We aren’t perfect, but the ethos of the company is the same - listen to our customers, get them what they need as quickly as possible, do the right thing and go over and above when it comes to service. We are here for you and we are here to serve you. If, where you are working, is an essential service that is lacking in appropriate PPE, or you have family members or colleagues that are under protected, please get in touch, we will do our best to help in whatever way we can. Whilst customers of ours are putting themselves on the front-line now, we know this will pass. And we will all come out the other side changed, but stronger. I was always fascinated with the secret soldiers and special forces stories growing up. Heroes operating in hostile territory. The truth is, right now you are the heroes. The real special forces. CAnd all of us at Church Pharmacy salute you. Zain Bhojani

COVID-19 UPDATE

Dear Valued Customer, As of 23rd March at 8:30pm, the UK Government announced that all non essential businesses must close for 3 weeks to minimize the risk of spreading of COVID-19. In light of this news and to ensure maximum safety for our customers and staff, we will be sadly closing our Central London branch and we will only accept online orders until further notice. We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause but we hope that you understand that it is in the best interest of our community. On a positive note, our Loughborough branch will remain open and we will continue to process all next day deliveries. Our cut off times for DigitRx and manual orders may vary over the coming days and weeks, so please do keep a look out on our website for updates. We are here to support you for as long as we can. Times are tough for all of us at the moment, but we hope that you all keep safe and stay well! The Church Pharmacy Team

Infection Control

Dear Valued Customer, As of 11th March, local public health authorities have declared coronavirus as a pandemic. As a pharmacy, we are taking this matter very seriously and it is now our number one priority to ensure safety of staff, customers and patients. The gov.uk website has stated that “Typical symptoms of coronavirus include fever and a cough that may progress to a severe pneumonia causing shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. Generally, coronavirus can cause more severe symptoms in people with weakened immune systems, older people, and those with long-term conditions like diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease.” In addition to this, the World Health Organization raised the risk of the coronavirus in the UK from moderate to high. Therefore we have been actively monitoring the situation and we would like to reassure everyone that in line with government guidance, we are continuing to operate within our usual opening hours as a pharmacy. During this time of uncertainty, we are committed to supporting you and your team. We will do everything we can to continue fulfilling your clinic requirements. We wanted to reach out to you about the measures we are taking at Church Pharmacy to support our staff and customers. Your safety and security will always remain our highest priority. We have outlined some of the measures we have taken below and thought we would share them with you as you may find them useful for your own clinic; Educating staff on prevention Ongoing communications with guidelines and information to ensure all team members are kept up to date. Staffing plans We have informed staff members who have recently travelled, living with someone who has travelled or whose roles are not critical to pharmacy operations to work from home until further notice. We have also put staff contingency plans in place to prevent any changes to our operational hours. Increased deep cleaning regime We have increased the frequency of deep cleaning and disinfecting all workstations, and other common areas at all Church Pharmacy branches. Reduction in physical contact We have placed a no close greeting policy at all branches. We’re not being rude, just keeping it clean! Providing hand sanitisers We have issued each member of staff with hand sanitisers to use frequently as well one for our customers to use at our front reception desk, along with a box of tissues. Providing immune boost supplements All Church Pharmacy staff members have been provided with supplements to help boost their immune systems to help reduce the risk of falling unwell. How can you help? Educate your patients on symptoms of the coronavirus, how they can stay safe and help to prevent the spread of COVID-19. As a pharmacy, we are able to offer medical support for you and your patients on any queries you may have. You can utilise this service by contacting us on 01509 357300. We have also collated a number of posters and tools that you can place in your clinic or provide to your customers. You can open and download them by clicking on the links below: - Here is a document from the World Health Organisation on Getting Your Workplace Ready for the coronavirus. You can put the Catch it, Bin it, Sanitise it, Kill it Poster up around your clinic entrances. You can view high risk areas here with the COVID-19 Travel and Symptoms Poster. The Wash Your Hands Poster can be placed as a reminder around communal areas. You can place the How to Wash Your Hands Poster around the sinks and cleaning areas of your clinics. We hope that you stay safe and we will continue provide you with regular updates. Best wishes, Church Pharmacy.

Azzalure Global Supply Issue - Update

Dear Valued Customer As per our announcement made on the 26th June 2019, Church Pharmacy had been informed by Galderma that there had been difficulties in supplying the forecasted June Azzalure stock to Church Pharmacy in June, and Church Pharmacy should expect delivery of any more Azzalure by the 1st July. Unfortunately, we are yet to receive an Azzalure delivery from Galderma. Church Pharmacy have not received an update as to why there has been a further delay as yet. We will endeavour to keep you posted on when we can expect the outstanding Azzalure to be delivered. In the meantime, we regretfully have been forced to extend the current Azzalure quotas in place due to low stock levels of Azzalure we currently hold. Azzalure quota limits which continue to be in place are as follows: The quota limit per patient is 2 x 125 Speywood unit vials of Azzalure. The quota limit per customer account is 2 x 125 Speywood unit vials of Azzalure. Quota limit in place on Azzalure Speywood units vials is from 26th June 2019 until further notice and are subject to change based on any further Azzalure deliveries from Galderma UK. Contact us for more info. How can we help you? Church Pharmacy is a family owned business built from humble beginnings with the vision of providing a better customer experience, choice and improved standards across the medical aesthetics sector. We hope you have enjoyed the services of Church Pharmacy since its inception in 2005 and will continue to do so.

Azzalure Global Supply Issue

Dear Valued Customer Unfortunately, Galderma UK has set supply restrictions on Church Pharmacy for Azzalure, therefore, we regretfully have had no choice but to introduce quotas on Azzalure supply to our customers from today. We have expressed to Galderma UK that their decision on restricting supply may affect our customer's clinics and patient treatments but unfortunately supply is still restricted at this time based on their reasons of “Ipsen’s global manufacturing plant is currently having difficulties in meeting demand for Azzalure". Temporary quota limits which are now in place are as follows: The quota limit per patient is 2 x 125 Speywood unit vials of Azzalure. The quota limit per customer account is 2 x 125* Speywood unit vials of Azzalure (*Revised on 27.6.19). Quota limit in place on Azzalure Speywood units vials from 26th June 2019 until end of 2nd July 2019 and are subject to change based on any further Azzalure deliveries from Galderma UK. You may recall we had to temporarily introduce such quota limits in late 2017 when Galderma was experiencing similar supply chain issues and we were under the impression this would never happen again with improved forecasting but unfortunately it has occurred again to the Azzalure product. We hope the situation is resolved next week by Galderma that all pharmacies receive the outstanding Azzalure stock. We apologies to all our customers who use Azzalure and are being affected by Galderma's decision but we have been informed by Galderma UK that we should expect more Azzalure stock by the 1st July 2019 however unsure of the time of delivery. How can we help you? Taking the above Azzalure news into account, we have a responsibility to our customers on providing the best possible service, after all that is why you chose to order from us (rather than other pharmacies who may be stocking Azzalure) and on this basis, we would request for you to Contact us our customer services team on how we may be able to mitigate the disruptive risk of the latest supply issues of Azzalure. Azzalure & Restylane Price Rises: We have been informed by Galderma that the Azzalure and Restylane prices will increase to all distributors from 1st July 2019, as a result of Galderma's decision, unfortunately prices are expected to rise over the coming weeks with Azzalure and Restylane across the sector. We have always tried to serve you in the best possible way and If you wish to discuss your Church Pharmacy clinic account, please contacting us and we will be happy to help to see if we can make savings for you on your overall customer account. We hope we can help work with you on what you feel is best for your clinic needs as a Church Pharmacy customer. Thank You,

Important Notice Regarding Brexit

Due to the growing uncertainty regarding Brexit, we at Church Pharmacy want to assure you that we are making provisions to ensure minimal disruption occurs in our services. We have been diligently planning in anticipation of any outcome, so that all of our customers will be able to order as normally as possible by ensuring that we have the necessary stock to fulfill orders. We have increased our overall stock holding to ensure continuity of supply to you, our clients, to avoid you having to over-order and keep product in stock to cover longer periods of your patients’ treatment plans. We are committed to providing our customers the standard of service they have come to expect through this period of uncertainty and will do our very best to ensure you remain as unaffected as possible. We will be reviewing the situation on a regular basis as the Brexit deadline draws closer (or is revised) so that we can fully assess the impact of Brexit and we endeavor to keep you apprised of any possible changes. For all further queries, please contact info@churchpharmacy.co.uk and we will respond as soon as possible. Kindest regards,

Product Compliance Notice

Unfortunate news: We have been informed that a pharmaceutical Wholesaler/Pharmacy has recently suffered from a break in. A large quantity of Botulinum Toxins were stolen including Azzalure, Dysport and Botox. https://www.eadt.co.uk/news/botox-style-drug-stolen-from-essex-business-1-5907101 Please report any suspicious activities to the MHRA quoting the case referral reference number INC 15298. MHRA Case Referral Centre contact details are as follows: Email - casereferrals@mhra.gov.uk Telephone - 020 3080 6330 Please be careful where you purchase your medicines from to ensure they are NOT from unofficial 3rd parties.The Falsified Medicines Directive: F.M.D recently had an update with its rules whereby medicine wholesalers (including Pharmacies) are required to have F.M.D approved barcode scanning systems in place, the scanning system is used to scan in and out the new 2D barcode on certain medicines (including Toxins) to help tackle the issue with stolen and other falsified medicines in the supply chain. Church Pharmacy have been compliant with this new F.M.D update since the regulation came into force on the 9th of February 2019 by scanning the relevant 2D barcodes on the medicines packs we are starting to receive from our official supply chain. The scanned barcode data is uploaded to SecurMed to provide us with an instant response back if there are any issues with the medicine pack, if there are no issues, the medicine pack is placed on our stock shelves ready for sale. Once the item is dispensed for a customer, the pack is re-scanned to be decommissioned out of the wholesale supply chain. This data is sent back to SecurMed for traceability and helps to reduce the risk of the pack falling into an unofficial supply chain. There are other additions with the latest F.M.D regulations such as requirements for medicines to have anti-tamper features which we also check as part of the F.M.D requirements. More info: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/implementing-the-falsified-medicines-directive-safety-features A Falsified Medicine is not just a Fake Medicine by its contents; Falsified Medicine can be medicine manufactured to the correct standards but have not passed through the official supply chains rendering the medicine and/or the associated paperwork as falsified, this can be dangerous for all sorts of reasons such as a uncertainty in how the products were stored through the unofficial supply chain, handling fraudulent products and issues with traceability and potential future recalls if needed. Be careful where you buy your medicines from and report suspicious activities to the MHRA such as companies offering you toxins (which may have been stolen).

Come and see us at the Aesthetics Conference & Exhibition – Stand 13

Church Pharmacy are thrilled to be attending the Aesthetics Conference & Exhibition 2019 once again this year. We have so many exciting opportunities to share with you and cannot wait to welcome you to our stand. You can have a sneak peak below of what we have coming.

Optimising Patients Plasma Results with Growth Factors
with Dr. Shirin Lakhani & Dr. Beatriz Molina

Masterclass:

Saturday 2nd March 2019 14:00 – 15:00
Dr. Shirin Lakhani
Dr. Beatriz Molina
Plasma has a number of modalities for use in Aesthetics. This session will be looking at using stem cell-derived growth factors in conjunction with two modalities; Plasma Blepharoplasty and Plasma Shower, to optimize patients experience and results. Our understanding of growth factors, although not an entirely new concept to the field, has come on leaps and bounds in the last decade and we are now seeing outstanding new developments in their usage and capabilities. The session will be looking in particular at growth factors sourced from mammalian umbilical cord lining stem cells and the parameters by which to analyse the potential efficacy of a growth factor product will be discussed.
Dr. Shirin Lakhani and Dr. Beatriz Molina are thought leaders in the UK when it comes to Plasma treatments and will be sharing how they have integrated these growth factors into their treatment protocols to reduce downtime, minimize the chance of complications and finally give enhanced aesthetic results to their patients.
Plasma Blepharoplasty is ever increasing in popularity with many patients preferring to avoid surgical blepharoplasty, although for some patients the downtime can be unacceptable in terms of both time and discomfort. There is also the potential for complications from infection when dealing with extended recovery periods. Dr. Shirin Lakhani will share her experience on how she has fine-tuned her plasma blepharoplasty protocol to greatly reduce this downtime and chance of complications to enhance patient satisfaction.
Plasma Shower treatments have a number of different indications; acne, pigmentation, skin tightening and rejuvenation without any skin irritation or downtime. Dr. Beatriz Molina will be giving an insight into her experience with Plasma Shower to treat acne and also as a rejuvenating treatment. Plasma Shower although non-ablative can be used as a delivery system for creams and serums to optimize their absorption by the skin. As such the introduction of a balanced growth factor product can yield outstanding results when paired with this treatment.
The session will also contain a live demonstration of the plasma shower paired with stem cell-derived growth factors.

Annual Survey Results

19th December, 2017

Important information for Azzalure practitioners:

Important information for Azzalure Practitioners: Dear Azzalure practitioners, Galderma UK Ltd have made some slight changes to the Azzalure vial, which do not change the product properties or qualities. The changes are subtle and may not be noticed, but to be clear Galderma has confirmed these to be:
  • A harder stopper to match the latest industry standards.
  • A stronger vial vacuum by using a slightly smaller vial size, however the volume of product remains the same.
Please be assured that Azzalure remains the same product manufactured in the U.K., and no other updates have been made. The new vials are now in circulation, so you can expect to receive these in your orders. The quality and safety of products continues to be of utmost importance to both Church Pharmacy and Galderma. We have received reports from clients that the neck of the new vial is too small in diameter to allow drawing up with 0.5ml and 0.3ml insulin syringes with integrated needles and cuffs, used by most aesthetic practitioners. As such we have consulted with a Doctor who is not a representative of Galderma or Church Pharmacy, who has confirmed that:
  • The 1.0ml insulin syringes pass easily into the new vials as they are designed differently and do not have cuffs, however the 0.02ml graduations on these syringes may not be suitable for certain doses.
  • The 1.0ml Azzalure syringes when used with one inch needles will reach all the way into the bottom of the new vial, however it is likely that the needle would need to be swapped to that most suitable for injecting, such as the BD Yellow 30G x 13mm (½") needle, after the product has been reconstituted and drawn up.
Please note it is always important to follow the advice of your Medical Advisor and / or Trainer. If you have any specific concerns or issues in relation to this announcement, please do not hesitate to contact your local representative. Any technical complaints and quality enquiries can be sent to medinfo.uk@galderma.com. Kind regards,
The Church Pharmacy Team
